Exclusive: Taiwan, under siege, goes all-out LisztNews
While China imposes a no-go zone on the island of Taiwan, a pair of piano professors are putting on a five-concert Franz Liszt Piano Festival in blithe defiance of the global threat.
The festival will include the composer’s complete works for piano and orchestra, the opera fantasies Don Juan, Norma and Tannhäuser, various religious works, melodramas with recitation, Transcendental Etudes, symphonic poems as two-piano transcriptions, and more.
Taking part are 26 Taiwanese pianists, aged 12 to 68, some of whom are flying in from all over the world to take part.
The professor-producers are Rolf-Peter Wille and Lina Yeh (pictured).
